Canada, Australia refuse to send athletes to Olympics 2020


Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian Olympic Committee and the Canadian Paralympic Committee decided not to send their athletes to the Tokyo Olympics if the event is held on schedule, reports CBC. The Olympics are scheduled in Tokyo from July 24 to August 9. A similar decision was later announced by the Australian Olympic Committee.

Canadian committees have called on the International Olympic Committee, the International Paralympic Committee and the World Health Organization to postpone the Games for one year. The Australian Committee also reports that its athletes should prepare for the Games in the summer of 2021.

Earlier, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said there is a possibility of postponement of the Olympic Games. However, he, like the IOC, does not consider the possibility of canceling the Olympics.
